undermining the rule of law that is at the center of our constitutional design. from obamacare to immigration, the current administration is picking and choosing which laws to an oars. the constitution does not confer upon the president the executive authority to disregard the separations of powers by unilaterally waving, suspending or revising the laws. it is a bedrock principle of constitutional law that the program must be fully execute acts of congress. the president cannot refuse to enforce the law simply because he dislikes it. certainly, president have from time to time make broad claims of executive power. however, assertions of executive authority have been limited to the area in which presidential powers are at their strongest. foreign affairs. the obama administration go has been equally assertive in the realm of domestic policy, routinely making end runs around congress for broad claims of prosecutorial discretion and regulatory actions that bush executive power beyond all limits. indeed, president obama is the first president since richard nixon to ignore a duly enacted law, simp
the national conversation for 2014 and two dozen 16 should be, is obamacare the best we can do? or can we develop a breakout to the generally personal health system that uses all the capabilities that we've got. also, is this economy the best we can do? or can we get a breakout liberating this once again, to be the most dynamic income society in the world. also, are we going to continue to steal from our children and grandchildren, or is it time to get to a balanced budget by changing the government. the other issue is that it is not revel in right now or today and is the current policy of weakness and confusion really very reliable as a national security policy, or is the world dangerous in this way? the nature of the world, you remember that they can get on the front burner all the time. but that should be our national conversation. we should say to every democrat and republican and libertarian and socialists. this is the best that you think that america can do? and let me put it into context. sometimes i am impatient with my friends in washington. the recently the internal revenue serv
guns and obama's doing this and that and obamacare's terrible. those were the guys i wanted to talk to. i said is this your stuff, and they said, yeah, who are you? i said, actually, i'm an academic, i'm a researcher, and i'm doing research on, you know, these organizations, these ideas and trying to to understand the guise of it and actually studying men who believe this stuff. and they, you know, a bunch of them looked at me suspiciously and sort of asked me questions, and i just said, look, here's what i am, you know? i don't get it. so -- but here's my job, i want to understand how you guys see the world. i want to understand your world view. look, you will not convince me, and i will not convince you. that's off the table. what is on the table is i want to understand why you think the way you do. >> downward mobility, racial and gender equality. michael kimmel on the fears,ening psities and rage of angry white men tonight at 9 on "after words," part of book thf this weekend on c-span2. >> and online for december's booktv book club, we want to know what your favorite weeks were --
mandate penalty under obamacare doesn't apply to the 34 states that haven't created insurance exchanges. the administration forced the employer mandate upon the american people anyway through an i.r.s. regulation. this has been the administration's plan. it can't get its liberal agenda through the congress, but it has saddled the american people with its job-crushing agenda anyway through agency regulation. but there's a catch to this scheme, a very big catch: agency decisions are reviewed by the federal judiciary. that happens to be our very independent third branch of government. so for this scheme to work, the white house needed to stack the d.c. circuit with judges who were rubber stamps for its agenda. as a result, the administration decided to ram their agenda through the agencies and simultaneously stack the d.c. circuit with judges that they believe would rubber stamp that agenda. that's why, on the very same day that the president made these three nominations, i said this, and i quote myself -- "it's hard to imagine the rationale for nominating three judges at once for this cou
could imagine such a negotiation about the effective date of obamacare. after the statute is passed via decide what the congress wants. gridlock is almost quite a predictable result. >> professor turley, the constitution of the breed of power isn't simply about stopping one branch of government from usurping another. it's about protecting the liberty of american of concentrated government power. how does the modification of act of congress affect the balance of power between the political branches into the liberty interest of the american people? >> the danger is quite severe. the problem with the president is doing is that he spoke simply posing a danger to the constitutional system. he's becoming the very danger that the constitution was designed to avoid. that is the concentration of power in every single branch. this orbit that the three branches exist in is a delicate one but it is defined to prevent this type of concentration. there are two trends going on that should be of equal concern. one is that we have had a radical expansion of presidential powers under both president bush
. stopped enforcement of mandatory sentencing. stopped parts of obamacare. the benghazi issue. the ag being held in content. irs is -- how many more things do you think has to occur? i'm thinking like a prosecuted. one of those in and of itself is not enough evidence. two of those in and of itself is not is not evidence. the violations that i see, that which is listed, and there are many more, i think is enough evidence to start asking questions, where do you see the line drawn in what i've cited here as enough evidence to start asking questions about presidents exceeding their power? >> well, first of all, congressman, i can't address all of the speed i don't expect you to. >> but many of those things -- let's be honest about it, our honest disagreements about policy, or about how to interpret the law. spin to your interpretation of the law -- you are saying, you don't agree with way perhaps i'm interpreting the law so you say i'm wrong. >> no. just to finish the sentence. raising the specter of some kind of grotesque presidential assertion of unwarranted authority, it's just not based on
of the majority. this stunning rules change by the senate majority can best be described as obamacare two. one of the things that americans really didn't like about the new health care law, obamacare, was that it was passed in the dead of night by a purely partisan vote during a snowstorm. it showed that those who had the votes could do whatever they want no matter what the minority thought and we can see the results. millions of americans having their policies canceled, next year tens of millions will, those who get their insurance through employers. this is another example of that kind of power play. this kind of the goal was to help the administration and the democratic majority advance its radical agenda unchecked through the courts and the executive agencies. as the senator from michigan, senator levin, said -- quoting, a quorummer republican senator, senator vandenberg, senator levin is a democrat, said if the majority of the senate can changed the rules at any time, there are no rules. if a majority of the senate can change its rules at any time, there are no rules. just as if pittsburg
to clear away perceptions that our roles create. >> one thing you wrote in the book is that obamacare/affordable care act can be altered. is that a fair assessment? >> like any legislation. what i wrote about the affordable care act/obamacare in the book is that just like legislation we have had for more than 200 years, when there are problems we need to sit down and work together. we don't need to go through 43 different attempts to repeal or deny people the access to health care. the affordable care act is a bill that was passed by both houses, sieb signed by the president and upheld by the supreme court. as problems arise, we should sit down and commit to work together. but republicans have to agree on the basic premises that health care is a right, not a privilege. >> other other issue: energy independence. what did you propose that is different? >> we have to wean off fossil fuels. investing in alternate energy resources while engaging in an all of the above strategy. we are getting to the point where we are exporting natural gas. but we have to have the all above strategy. not
, and then he followed it with obamacare which is a revolution in one-sixth and a takeover of a sixth of the american economy. which to me, and i wrote at the time before he enacted all of this, made ima social democrat on the european model. very unusual for the united states. people ask me, well, what's a social democrat? the only way to explain it is with a famous anecdote about winston churchill. the labour party leader, the socialist becomes prime minister. churchill's leader of the opposition. one day he goes down to the men's room in the house of commons, and there standing alone at one of the urinals is -- [inaudible] don't worry, that's as weird as it gets. [laughter] churchill goes all the way to the other end of the men's room to a urinal 15 stalls over, and adelaide is puzzled. feeling a bit standoffish, are we, winston? churchill says, not at all. it's just that every time you see something large, you want to nationalize it. [laughter] i kind of like that one too. [laughter] you know, i'm not even sure it's true. it could be be apocryphal, but i don't care. [laughter] as
that bought plans since it took effect. in other words, obamacare has a grandfather clause anything after the enactment of obamacare is illegal unless it meets the statutory requirement. with the president is saying as he is extending a grandfather clause to cover plans beyond what the statute contemplates so you think that's appropriate? >> i think you are making a good point. if it is to bury -- >> let me say that we passed in the house a bill that would have grandfathered in the plans and i think that we should do that. >> what i meant to say is i think it is appropriate as a measure if it is necessary to effectively -- >> contrary to the statute the whole point of obamacare is unique to force people into these exchanges. what about this idea. if the political environment is tough with fb a reason to delay the law or grant a waiver to the law if you cite to the political environment as your justification? congress isn't doing what i want. i may suffer political damage so i'm going to do it anyway. i think in your testimony you did make some good points. i will give you that. you didn't
conversation for 2014 and 2016 should be very simple. it's essentially three and a half topics. is obamacare the best we can do, or can we develop a breakout to a genuinely personal health system that uses all the modern capabilities we've got? that's number one, because you can't avoid it. two, is this economy the best we can do, or can we get a breakout to the pioneers of the future liberating us once again to be the most dynamic, full-employment, high-income society in the history of world? three, are we, are we going to continue to steal from our children and grandchildren, or is it time to get to a balanced budget by fundamentally changing the government? and then the other issue which i list as a half issue because it's not relevant right now every day, but it could bite us at any time, and that is is this, is the current policy of weakness, confusion really a very reliable national security policy, or is the world dangerous, and do we need a much more coherent foreign and national security policy? that's not on the front burper right now. unfortunately, the nature of the world as you
that medicare is bad. it means they're hard to get started, and it's just the same as obamacare. but now i repeat, mr. president, many of the major problems with the health care law have been fixed hundreds of thousands of americans are logging on every day to research plans that they think could work for them and sign up for insurance that they know they need. states that embrace the affordable care act, such as kentucky and washington, have also reported successes with their exchanges. and thanks to the health care law and a few short weeks, no one can ever again be denied insurance just because they have a preexisting condition. because they are a cancer survivor, because they live with diabetes, because they had acne growing up or they're a woman. because of this landmark law, insurance companies can no longer cancel your policy when you get sick, charge you more -- i repeat -- because you're a woman or set an arbitrary limit on care that you receive. millions of seniors have saved billions of dollars on medicine because of the affordable care act. why? because it closed the gap in pre
different take but what do you take is his assessment of the preparation obviously obamacare two office with the world collapsing around have. but president bush 43 said hank paulson of a bike to help you but i would do more harm than good but what frustrates people that are of of the supporters is there doesn't seem to be if the idea of powell of where he wants to go or how he gets there we go double down he has a staff meeting before i want to go back to my agenda of climate change to the immigration and they are in this light the state of for because they know those are not the issues. somehow we prepare people that obama is somebody to look at as a model. >> that is an interesting point because after all roosevelt was governor of your. so learning how to run a big organization or a state but then you look at senator kennedy he had no background of a big operation but he also comes in with little preparation but tickled by this incredible storm he has got this out of the worst recession since the great depression of that alone is quite an accomplishment. i agreed the second jervis i
of this from the wall street journal today. obamacare mission accomplished. was this a mission accomplish type briefing there? >> it wasn't a mission accomplish thing because they did a huge emphasis on we have a lot of work to do. this is by no-means a perfect system. we have it to where we want it. but there is going to be problems and things need to be fixed. this is an ongoing process to make it work better and better. and they acknowledge parts of the website need to continue to be worked on. so they are saying we did it. everything is great and we will take off now isn't the message >> what is the next measure of success? >> how many people can succe successful successfully enroll and looking at insurance companies and making sure they are receiving the payments and the subsidies. and starting january 1st, how many people have insurance and are going to the doctor and getting pavements and co-payments. we need to see it working in real life >> that issue of the insurance companies working for themselves has been releasing stories. this is from new york times and saying people anticipate
insurance cancellation notices. do you think medicare advantage may be obamacare's next victim? and if so, what might beneficiaries in pennsylvania expect over the coming years in terms of plan choices, costs, foregone benefit offerings and provider networks? >> thank you, mr. chairman. indeed, i am concerned about the future of medicare advantage. as i said in my opening statement. the work we've done on the implications of aca cuts, for example, in pennsylvania would suggest that in 2014 there would be an average loss of benefit for beneficiary of about $2200. that this is about a 19% reduction in those benefits. and that we would see a decline in the available of medicare that is to about 113,000 pennsylvanians. those numbers for 2014 are of concern, but i am more troubled by the trajectory over succeeding five years and the full cuts under the affordable care act as to whether medicare events were remain a viable option within the medicare program and deliver the comprehensive benefits. and i just want to echo the statements that we heard in many of the opening remarks. the medicare p
. what would you say, what are your thoughts on obamacare? and i ask because while generally when the bill was implement it we were all universally against it. i do think that lately our tone has been sounding like a witchhunt. because everyone kind of things that would be like a winning issue and everything like that but i'm not so convinced just yet and i'm curious about your thoughts on the. secondly, i was curious about what you think, what's been called in immediate the gop civil war. so while i applaud you for coming out and saying what you feel anything like that, i've been told as the republican chairman to tone it down, be friendly, show an image of unity. so i'm just -- >> who is telling you? who is telling you to tone it down? >> in party. we want to make sure that we look healthy spent live free or die. [laughter] spent there you go. amen to that. >> look, on your second question, not to get overdramatic, i'm not too fond of the term civil war when it comes to what's going on in the republican party. maybe it's because i lived through one, and so i don't, i don't -- on
association writers, you think the obamacare compensation is bad. the implication of the common core is far worse. who is to blame and is anyone stepping up to fix it? >> i'm not a big believer in blame. i'm a big believer -- and let me say what. i'm a union leader. i could easily say, this one, this one, this one. but if we're not rolling up her sleeves and actually engaging in this then we are in the same debate about who cares about kids. i care about kids. no, i care about kids. no, i care about kids. that's the debate we've been having during this period time. let me just say, this is what i think has happened. we get education policy by precedent. and i think the governor and the state chiefs were right about saying let's figure out a set of standards that are aligned to let kids know -- they move pretty fast about it. we were engaged within and brought a lot of teachers who critiqued the materials and things like that. this is what didn't happen. the public wasn't involved. parents were involved. the districts were involved. and so it felt like, because of the speed at which it went
gathering the data supreme court was going to rule on the affordable care act which we all know as obamacare. we were mid flight when the telephone rang on the plane. the air force is able to keep phone service even at 20,000 feet. with the caller calling to tell the first lady of the court had ruled in favor of the government and obamacare was upheld and who was ringing the first lady? the president on the line calling with words for his life. i realize that our conversation and wincing moments like that on the plane that when it came to marriage president obama wasn't just chiding me for sport. he wanted me to have what he has. something so hard to find in the world of politics, a love the doesn't fade based on circumstances. dan baker friday's. and he talks about how we got engaged. a little different side of the president than we often see. the last and say that i will read before we wrap up is probably about my most difficult day in the white house. my day pales in comparison to the difficult day other people had particularly in newtown, conn. on this day but again, it shows an importan
to have a government is trying to take away your right to own guns and doing this and that and obamacare is terrible, so those were the ones i wanted to talk to because they were the ones with the ideas. so i went up to this one table and i just sort of said -- i pick up a pamphlet and said is this yours and about three or four guys were standing around this table talking and, you know, they looked at me kind of suspiciously -- >> host: you sound like what you are -- you sound like a new york guy so it's not hard to hide -- >> guest: iam a brooklyn jewish sociologist, so you know, take two. [laughter] but so of course i'm not going to like take some accent and pretend to -- >> host: could you even do it? >> guest: i doubt it actually. i don't think i would try. so i said to them is this your stuff and they said yeah, who are you? i said i am an academic. i'm a researcher and i'm doing research on these organizations, these ideas into trying to understand. i'm actually studying men who believe this stuff and a bunch of them looked at me suspiciously and sort of asked me questions and i ju
requires business owners to aggregate employees and could subject the business to the obamacare employer mandate. according to the national federation of independent business, 39% of small businesses with 20 or more employees on at least 10% of one or more other businesses. to determine if the threshold of 50 or more employees has been met with the situations the health care law utilizes the internal revenue service code, controlled group business aggregation rules which are complex and confusing even for most experts. some experts have suggested that most small business owners could not interpret these rules without the guidance and related costs of a tax specialist. despite the administration's promises that the health care law would help small businesses, each week seems to bring entrepreneurs more bad news, more costly regulations, more uncertainty and less incentive to grow their business and create jobs. a recent u.s. chamber of commerce international franchise association survey found that 53% of small-business owners leave the law will have a negative impact on their business. ou
the day before the government shutdown which was also day one of obamacare on october 1 or 2nd i guess. he was asked, what about george zimmerman? he said the investigation is ongoing. you have to understand the fbi spent three months investigating george zimmerman and they cleared him fully 16 months ago. not only that but just quickly zimmerman's most prominent role in sanford was the year before this incident took place a black homeless man had been punched out at the son of the police lieutenant and was brushed away. zimmerman happily got involved, printed out flyers and handed them out all over the city, spoke publicly on video in front of -- in defense of sherman where and it led to the termination of the police chief. that is how active in public he was. he had on the top of the flyer a quote from me famous anglo irishman and it said people can try and only when men of good will do nothing. he would have been better off using a quote from another anglo irishman oscar wilde, no good deed goes unpunished. they just ignored all that and that all went away but the whole thing went in ab
of medicare that is going to go to obamacare and of course we were strengthening medicare by $500 billion. having that as a part of the record, how can we say that medicare has strengthened? is medicare now stronger than it has ever been? >> i don't bb of the trust fund reveals anything about the future solvency of medicare. the facts on the ground are that in recent years the gap between the premiums into payroll taxes going in is $300 billion. >> that is a cash flow deficit. we get 10,000 beneficiaries every day and the absence of general reform that allow people to get the care that they need and deserve and abby slover cost growth it will fall under its own financial weight. >> for the secretary to affirm, $500 billion that isn't really chump change in the big picture of health care costs. i am getting comments from constituents in the district who medicare advantage folks now their benefits are being reduced. they are losing access to their preferred physicians. this is under the current system now. my question is how much worse can this get for my seniors who opt out for medicare ad
interested of that. is obamacare constitutional? a huge number of people will focus on it in an institution will not adapt itself because it is very stayed in -- staid in getting that information out there. what it is they're that we're doing as part after national conversation it should be clear to everyone we're hardly alone. so for example, american lawyer media for which tony now works, has this wonderful publication, supreme court insider, which is getting more information about the court. pete now reports not on, all the law that, the justice department, the supreme court but they have instead of one platform in nbc news now, msnbc ends the website of "nbc news." so i do think that we're far from alone in taking advantage of the lower cost of distribution. we should talk at some point what the economic models of all these places are because tony operates on one economic model. some of his material is free through the blog of legal times. some is subscription only through the supreme court insider. pete's work is advertising supported. we have this unbelievable sponsor in bloomberg law
the plants. back in 2010, cbs chief actuary did a report on the impact of obamacare to medicare advantage. he wrote and i quote we estimate that in 2017 -- i know you touched on this, but elaborate, please. we estimate that in 2017 when the m.a. provisions will be fully phased in enrollment in medicare advantage plans will be lower i about 50%, does this track with your own analysis of these cuts of? >> apps alluded. as you for today medicare advantage is a high quality program, very popular. even more popular nationwide. the senior population is rising 10,000 beneficiaries every day. one would expect that if nothing else changed you would see more enrollment, a lot more. we are going to see less. what's changed is a financial foundation, the cuts under a maple make it impossible for plans to survive and those that survive will have to change the networks and their benefits and the cost-sharing in ways that seniors will find under struggle. the net result will be less availability of medicare advantage. >> next question for you. some democrats have been pushing the accountable care organizati
